Five years after a man eloped with a girl, married her and had two children with her, has been arrested for her abduction and rape.

Kolar policemen told that Balram Bhagat (25) had abducted the minor girl from Kolar in 2009. She was just 17-year-old then.

The two were native of Khandwa and worked as labourers in Kolar. With an intention to marry, the two had eloped to Khandwa after which the girl’s family had lodged an abduction report against the youth at Kolar police station.

By the time police nabbed them, they had two kids – a three-year-old girl and a one year old boy, the report said.

Police has arrested the youth five years after he was booked. The girl is around 22 years now and has been brought back along with her kids and handed over to her family.

“It is now up to the court to decide future of the two. The verdict will mainly depend on the statement of the family members of the girl,” Station house officer of Kolar police station, Akhilesh Mishra told.
